I use stalite (permatill, volebloc) mixed into the soil when I plant new bulbs, unless they are toxic plants like daffodils. Stalite looks like pumice and supposedly voles don't like to dig through it.  It does seem to work.

Do those non-poisonous pellets work? Or are predators (cats, dogs), poison baits, or traps the way to keep them somewhat at bay?
